Business Office

General purpose

Goodwin University is committed to enrolling diverse students, including those from wide-ranging economic backgrounds. The Business Office at Goodwin University is committed to providing quality customer service to a culturally diverse population of students. The Business Office is primarily responsible for the billing and collecting of tuition, fees, and miscellaneous charges that students incur while attending Goodwin University.

Billing polices

The student is responsible for meeting all payment deadlines. Failure to do so may prevent students from enrolling. Diplomas and transcripts will be withheld until all bills have been paid. Electronic account statements are accessible throughout the year detailing the charges and credits for that billing period and indicating the amount currently due and payable through the Self-Service Portal. Payments (or payment agreements) are due before classes start for the enrolled semester. Students must review their billing via Self-Service to determine if there is a balance on their account. It is suggested students review this information two weeks prior to the start of each semester. Payment arrangements are available and must be formally arranged prior to the start of classes.

Payment methods

Students may pay their bills through the Self-Service Portal. Forms of payment accepted via the portal are ACH/checks, credit cards, and debit cards. Goodwin University also accepts cash payments made in person at the Business Office and checks mailed in or dropped off.

Payment plans

Payment Plans are available to students with a balance on their account. This enables students to pay their semester charges and enroll in available payment plans up to (6) installments. Student payment arrangements can also be set up as electronic transactions with the ACH option. There are also no additional fees for the ACH electronic payment option. A student may opt in to have their payments automatically withdrawn from their bank account or card of choice.

  • All payment plans will include a non-refundable $40 payment plan fee.
  • A $25 fee for insufficient funds will be charged to the student's account.
  • Any unpaid fees will result in registration and transcript holds.
  • A $50 late fee will be applied to any late payments.

Using online billing and payment feature

Goodwin University offers the convenience of online billing. Students can access this feature through Self-Service under the Student Finance tab. Select the "Make a Payment" option to pay the balance by credit card, debit card, or ACH Account Number and follow the prompts. Once completed, you will be brought back to the Self-Service Billing screen, and your payment will be automatically loaded and credited to your account. In the event Self-Service rejects your payment, Goodwin University will assess a $25 insufficient funds fee. Goodwin University does not assess any additional charges for processing approved payments.

Third party payments

The Business Office will invoice third parties so long as the authorization from the third party includes a statement that payment will be made upon receipt of the invoice and payment is not contingent on any minimum grade requirement received by the student.

Tax forms

Student IRS 1098T Tax Forms will be available to students online for viewing and printing in accordance with the IRS regulations on or before January 31 of every year. The tax form will be available to students and alumni through our Self-Service Portal.

Withdrawing from course/institution

Students must withdraw from a course or the institution prior to the start of the semester for a 100% refund of tuition. Please refer to the course catalog for the Refund Policy for further information.
